The Graduate School @ ARMA

CaptureEvery year the Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA) Conference welcomes research professionals from all over the country to share the latest knowledge, experience and best practice around professional research support. This year the Graduate School attended the ARMA conference hosted in my home city of Birmingham. It was great that our paper entitled ‘A New Model of Training for Doctoral Supervisors at Bournemouth University’ was accepted to be presented at the conference (which attracted over 300 delegates) as it gave us a great opportunity to showcase some of the innovative work being done by the Graduate School. The paper, which highlighted our commitment to the ongoing enhancement of postgraduate supervisory training, was extremely well received and stimulated interesting discussion around the topic. Since the conference, Dr Julia Taylor (Graduate School Academic Manager) has been asked to join the ARMA PGR Special Interest Group as well as provide additional presentations on this topic at future ARMA events. We look forward to our next conference at the UKCGE where we will also be presenting a conference paper.
